I have worked with Rachel for around 11 months now, both being recruited by her, and having her recruit for me. I cannot recommend her highly enough, she is extremely professional and always provides an exceptional service, in terms of both actively recruiting, and providing an excellent after-service.
I have always found Rachel polite & enthusiastic about job roles which may suit myself. Rachel clearly does understand her role & does this well. As a potential placement I have been kept well informed by Rachel about the progression of potential interviews. I have no hesitation in recommending both Compass & Rachel to others.
As the Managing Director of Westgate Healthcare, I have been working with Rachel at Compass Associates for many years. Rather than being passed around different people who don’t know me or our company, I have been able to build a relationship with Rachel and I always know I can get hold of her. She knows what I am looking for and takes the time to understand this so that she can deliver the best results and send me high quality candidates rather than just any old person, which is what most other recruiters do. For Rachel it is quality over quanity which is why I like working with her. She gets me results and doesn’t waste my time. There are only a couple of recruiters I will ever work with on senior posts and Rachel is one of them. She has a great knowledge of the care sector and the candidates in the market place, she adds value, she is friendly and she will go the extra mile for the right candidate. She is also focussed on ensuring that the role is right for the candidate as well as the candidate being right for the employer, which helps ensure that you attract people who want to work with you and will stay with you. I would highly recommend Rachel Kraan and Compass Associates as a recruiter of choice.
Rachel at Compass always finds us great quality candidates and liaise so well when arranging interviews, they always follow up and support our recruitment efforts for which I am always grateful.
Rachel is a brilliant recruiter – professional, thorough and consistently going the extra mile. I have been particularly impressed by her not swamping me with CVs but only forwarding those of people who were likely to be a good fit. Some of the skills required for specific roles can be hard to come by but Rachel continues to proactively hunt for suitable candidates. As a Senior Consultant, I believe that Rachel is excellent at managing a team and ensuring that the most suitable consultants are tasked with finding the best candidates for each role.
